Bruins’ Sturm Out for Season

BOSTON (AP) – Marco Sturm will miss the rest of the Boston

Bruins season with a right knee injury.

Coach Claude Julien said Sunday that Sturm will not be back

after injuring his knee on the first shift of Boston's 5-4 overtime

victory over the Philadelphia Flyers in Saturday's opener of their

best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal. Game 2 is Monday night.

Sturm led the Bruins with 22 goals during the regular season but

had no goals or assists in his seven postseason games.

He fell after throwing a check at Matt Carle. Aided by teammates

Patrice Bergeron and Mark Recchi, he skated to the bench as he

flexed his right knee. On Dec. 18, 2008, Sturm tore ligaments in

his left knee and missed the rest of the season.
